Former Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi and Journey band member Neal Schon are getting married in San Francisco on December 15. But their wedding is no ordinary one. The couple have invited celebrities to host it, the groom’s famous band to perform, and will be streaming the whole thing on Pay-Per-View for $14.95.
Michaele, whose Real Housewives stint was short-lived when the franchise only lasted one season, is better known for being one half of the infamous White House Party Crashers couple. She and her ex-husband Tareq Salahi were caught sneaking into a White House event they hadn’t been invited to, causing a major security flap.
And that wasn’t the couple’s only curious moment caught on camera. The Salahis were accused of lying about their income, taking trips and buying houses they couldn’t afford, and threatening some of Tareq’s relatives about a family business gone bankrupt. Michaele claimed to have been a Washington Redskins cheerleader, which was later proven to be untrue. When Michaele left her husband to run off with Neal, Tareq told people that Michaele had lied about having MS, which had been one of her storylines on Real Housewives.
Neal and Michaele’s wedding should be an interesting event. “Neal & Michaele: The Winter Wonderland Wedding and Music Event” will be hosted by former All My Children star Cameron Mathison and former The View cohost Debbie Matenopolous. Journey will perform, of course.
It’s clear that this couple has no problem living in public. Neal proposed to Michaele live onstage at a Journey concert last year.
